Comptroller Peter V.R. Franchot is expected to run for governor in 2014, a prospect discussed in this piece in The Washington Times in September.
County Executive Isiah Leggett (D) said last year that he would not seek re-election to the post that Duncan held for three terms.
Maryland Juice reported rumors in January that Duncan was considering a run for comptroller. The blog noted that Duncan would be part of an increasingly crowded field.
